4 Reasons Why You Need Insulation for Steel Buildings

Steel buildings are fantastic options for a range of applications in Powys. From warehouses and industrial units to clubhouses and grain stores, we design and install steel buildings for all types of sectors. If you’re thinking about commissioning a new steel building, it’s important to think about adding the right insulation. In this post, our steel engineers share four important reasons why you need quality insulation in new steel buildings.

1.    Improved Comfort

If you or your staff plan on spending prolonged periods of time within your new steel building, insulation is essential for comfort. Steel buildings without insulation are incredibly warm in the summer and freezing in the winter.

Adding insulation helps to regulate the internal temperature year-round, so it’s always comfortable to spend time within the building.

2.    Lower Energy Costs

If your new steel building in Powys requires climate control, insulation will seriously cut energy costs. We use only the highest quality insulation on our steel buildings, meaning they are energy efficient and reduce energy consumption.

If your steel structure is going to be used as an office, clubhouse, warehouse, or retail space, insulation is a must-have feature.

3.    Reduced Condensation

Steel buildings are more prone to condensation build-up, which can lead to issues with mould, poor air quality, and water damage.

No matter the function, we ensure our steel structures are well-insulated and well-ventilated to reduce the build-up of condensation.

Insulation thickness starts at around 40mm and goes up to around 120mm. However, when it comes to choosing the right insulation for condensation concerns, it’s important to check on the U value for the best results.

4.    Increased Value

If you plan on selling your steel building in the future, high-grade insulation will boost the resale value and be a key selling feature. Most steel structures don’t come with quality insulation, meaning your building will have far more practical uses than others in the area.

This also helps turn your new steel structure into a long-term investment. Over time, it will help boost the value of your business and become a key asset for your company.
